During the first week back we will be focusing on Halloween and bonfire night. We will be having a halloween themed day on Wednesday and the children can come dressed for the occasion. Our activities will include pumpkin carving, baking and various other craft activities.
Our topic after the first week will be people who help us. This will include the Fire Brigade with an emphasis on keeping safe during the firework weekend.
We will also be practising our fine/gross motor skills in preparation for writing our names. Activities for this will include gross movements using the carnival sticks and the parachute.
For our fine motor skills we will continue to access lots of craft activities, using the one handed tools, painting with a variety of materials and moulding dough/clay.
Towards the end of the term we will shift our focus to Christmas and all the fun activities that go with it. We will be learning lots of seasonal songs and listening to the traditional Christmas stories. We will also be holding another "booknic" with a Christmas story focus.
